Ekiti state Governor Dr kayode Fayemi has imposed a twenty four hours curfew across the state commencing from ten o clock this evening.
In a statement the Secretary to the state Govt Mr Biodun Oyebanji said the curfew was to prevent anarchy by some elements who have hijacked the peaceful protest against Endsars in the state..
Mr Oyebanji said the hoodlums have capitalised on the ENDSARS protest to engage in robbery, rape and assault on innocent citizens in addition to the wanton destruction of private properties..
He noted that govt was concerned that if such was allowed to continue unabated, it would lead to breakdown of law and order thereby threatening the wellbeing of the people of Ekiti State.
Mr Oyebanji said only essential workers and service providers with valid means of identification would be allowed during the period of the curfew.
The Ekiti state government scribe said any person found on the streets without any reason would be arrested and prosecuted according to the laws of the state.
